Product Highlights
  • Infrared
  • Lanyard Attachment
  • For Optio I-10, W90, K-7, K-x
  • All Future Pentax Remote-Capable Cameras

The Pentax Waterproof Infrared Remote Control enables you to fire your PENTAX camera remotely without having to worry about the elements. It features a shutter release button, a zoom button and a function button that can be used to change the delay time for remote capture. This remote is not for video functions.

To ensure waterproof performance, the remote is totally sealed, which means that the internal Li-ion battery is non-replaceable. The lanyard attachment lets you attach the remote to a strap, camera case, or to your camera itself (lanyard not included). The remote control is compatible with the following Pentax cameras: Optio I-10, W90, K-7, K-x and any future cameras with remote control capability.

    Just works

    Focus and shoot. Simple as that.

    Took all of 5 seconds to get use to... ie in Continuous mode you press once to start shooting and again to stop (not hold down)... same in Bulb mode. This is a little opposite to wired remotes I have used where you hold the button down.

    Has a Fn button that the K-5 does not use... not idea why. No points off for that since I can't think of a use for it.

    Just took some nice shots of the Milky Way, 20 seconds exposure, no shake,

    This is the first time ever I have rated a product one star or less! I purchased this 01/05/2012 today is 11/03/2013..Order # 1019139451. Needless to say it DOES NOT WORK. The BATTERY is non user replaceable! So let's see $3.00 to ship each way =$6.00 plus cost of battery replacement $10-to $15.00 and at $16.00-to-$21.00, I feel like i have been had! I don't blame B&H But this is the only forum that will get read! So "Buy a stranger a $2.00 cup of coffee to fire the shutter if you want to be in it or use the camera's self timer" Save your money on this one folks!!

            Simple to use. It doesn't have to be directly in line with the infrared sensors on the camera and has a good range. It actually has a longer range than I expected.

              I use the remote for long exposures and it works just as expected. I am around bodies of water on a regular basis so the waterproofing is nice for peace of mind. Battery changing requires unscrewing two screws but they should last long enough that it is not that much of an issue.

                    After setting up my Pentax K-5 IIs to use the remote, it works flawlessly. Best investment I have made for my Pentax outside of lenses. Need to supply your own lanyard.

                      I like the remote and it seems to work pretty well, although positioning in relation to the camera is important. Doesn't come with a lanyard or anything to hold onto it, making it easy to drop.

                            Works fine and it is very useful when you want to take pictures where you want to appear also, and, most important, it lets you and your group take your time. The only cons I have is that the battery is not replaceable nor chargeable.

                            It is waterproof, small, very useful when you want to be in the picture or not wanting to touch the camera while taking a picture. All this for $ bucks. What else can you ask for that price?

                            Sensational remote control that is protected from the weather. The only gripes are the non-replaceable battery and the relatively close distance you have to be to your camera with line of sight. Otherwise terrific.

                            This is a nice remote, but the battery did not last the 50,000 activations the manufacturer claimed. I probably made less than 1,000. I hate the fact it is disposable. I will send my old remote back to Pentax so they can dispose of it properly. I like the IR remote because I can use it in any weather, but don't trust it as your only remote--have a remote cable in case this stops working.

                            I got fewer than 10 uses out of this before it died. Battery cannot be replaced.

                                I bough this remote for my friend's Pentax. Myself I have a Nikon remote and I was very surprise to see a very light and 'cute" remote which somehow nicely fits hand. I like its ultra thin size and the waterproof feature. It will not disappoint you.

                                      It's very handy to have a remote that can be used in bad weather, dropped into snow, puddles, and so on. The remote works with my K-5. Range seems to be around 15 feet. The "zoom" button (middle button) activates autofocus, and the orange button releases the shutter. The Fn button does not do anything with the K-5. It's probably worth it to get this remote with the K-5 instead of the non-waterproof one unless you really like the tiny, tiny size of the standard remote. For me, the standard remote was too small, and hard to use with cold or wet hands.
